Friday Favorites: The 5 Ps

Happy happy Friday! Today my favorites all have one thing in common – they all coincidentally start with the letter P which is PERFECT since this is a PARTY blog πŸ˜‰

First up is the awesome POOL at Sunriver. Cocktails, a waterslide, a large hot tub, and lots of chairs for lounging – what more could you need?! It was a great spot and we went almost every day during our trip.

Summer Spicy Peach and Corn Salad

Each year during our week in Sunriver, a different family takes over dinner each night. For our dinner, we chose to do carnitas as our main dish so we found a peach and corn salad to accompany it. It was delicious so I wanted to share it here so you could enjoy it too!


We were inspired by this original recipe, and made some modifications to make it our own. Here’s what we used to make four servings… Continue reading

Julie Travels: Sunriver 2018

Hi friends! I am back from a week away in Sunriver, Oregon. Chelsea’s family has been going to Sunriver for over 20 years, and I have had the pleasure of joining them for the last five trips. It is such a fun vacation spot, and something I look forward to each year.

Last year, I blogged about all the awesome things to do in Sunriver.

Ice Cream Social

Today I’m sharing the cutest set of ice cream partywares that are perfect for summer! I found these items at my local Fred Meyer (for my non-Pacific Northwest friends, that’s a chain store kind of like a Super Target) by a company called Cakewalk. I was so excited when I discovered that Cakewalk is a local company that’s just getting started. Check them out here. So fun right?!

When I came across this set of ice cream party supplies I knew I just had to have them! I styled them up for a fun little ice cream social, and I just love how bright and festive the whole set is!

Friday Favorites: Summer Fun!

Hi there and happy Friday! I love a Friday that feels like a Tuesday after a mid-week holiday, don’t you?!! My favorites this week are a little random, thanks to the mid-week day off, and they’re all about summer fun!

First up was reminiscing on the blog about the Donuts, Pancakes, and Pajamas party we threw for Chelsea’s nieces a couple weeks ago. We had the BEST time!

Donuts, Pancakes, and Pajamas Party

A couple weeks ago, Chelsea and I hosted her nieces (the cutest triplets you ever did see!) for a birthday slumber party. I love giving experiences as gifts, and the girls LOVE slumber parties at our house, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to invite them over to celebrate their birthday.


In all honesty, we really didn’t need a theme – they would’ve had fun just coming over to be with Penny (she’s the star of the show when they visit), but nevertheless, I wanted to make this slumber party extra special since they are turning nine.Β  Continue reading
